Daily D – Exodus 12:40-41
Exodus 12:40, 41 The people of Israel had lived in Egypt for 430 years. In fact, it was on the last day of the 430th year that all the Lord’s forces left the land. (NLT)
God does the right thing for the right reason at the right time. He is never early; never late. This is how to live an unhurried life. This is how to accomplish everything you need to do every day.
This has been Sick Week for my bride and me. She got the bug first and lovingly passed it along to me. Dave Barry wrote years ago that nothing brings a family together like the flu.
Our bug has not been that serious. There have been benefits. I have lost weight. This is a byproduct of not being able to eat much of anything. Yesterday’s breakfast was two slices of cinnamon raisin bread and a banana. I enjoyed a cup of yogurt for lunch.
We felt so much better last night that we ordered enchiladas and tacos from one of our favorite restaurants. Halfway through the enchiladas, I realized I was not quite well enough to eat enchiladas.
I am awaiting God’s perfect timing for this bug to run its course. One hour and nine minutes from now would be pretty good timing for me. If that’s not God’s perfect timing, I will keep on waiting, eating cinnamon raisin bread, bananas, and yogurt. I will keep on working through the continuing education courses I need for my professional coaching certification.
I might even work in a nap later.
I will trust God’s perfect timing with everything in my life, including this virus.
Our Father, I want to walk so closely with you that I fairly well exist in your perfect timing in all things. Drag me, push me, retrieve me, redirect me as often as necessary. You are my Shepherd. I belong to you. Amen.

Psalm 32:7-9 For you are my hiding place; you protect me from trouble. You surround me with songs of victory. Interlude The Lord says, “I will guide you along the best pathway for your life. I will advise you and watch over you. Do not be like a senseless horse or mule that needs a bit and bridle to keep it under control.”
Exodus 39:42, 43 So the people of Israel followed all of the Lord’s instructions to Moses. Then Moses inspected all their work. When he found it had been done just as the Lord had commanded him, he blessed them.
Exodus 33:13 “If it is true that you look favorably on me, let me know your ways so I may understand you more fully and continue to enjoy your favor. And remember that this nation is your very own people.”
Exodus 31:1-5 Then the Lord said to Moses, “Look, I have specifically chosen Bezalel son of Uri, grandson of Hur, of the tribe of Judah. I have filled him with the Spirit of God, giving him great wisdom, ability, and expertise in all kinds of crafts. He is a master craftsman, expert in working with gold, silver, and bronze. He is skilled in engraving and mounting gemstones and in carving wood. He is a master at every craft!”
